Post Office scandal Explained
In 2020, the Post Office paid out a £57.75m settlement after more than 550 claimants brought group legal action over the Horizon system, which was found to contain software flaws that caused financial shortfalls in the sub-postmasters’ branch accounts over a number of years.
An investigation later revealed Post Office managers knew IT problems could be to blame for missing money but still prosecuted staff. A Post Office spokesman said,
“We have taken determined action to address past events and we are working to reform the Post Office, to forge an open and transparent relationship with the thousands of current postmasters providing customers with vital services in the UK’s communities. We agreed a comprehensive resolution last year with claimants in group civil litigation, following successful independent mediation. We sincerely apologise to those affected.”
